Commercial and Civic

With a growing desire to create public spaces that are inclusive and enjoyable, and workplaces that are flexible and efficient, the commercial and civic sectors need architecture that drives business and the community to be more socially, culturally and environmentally minded - the triple bottom line.

Dedicated to designing distinguished commercial and civic buildings that both tenants and the wider community can take pride in, Guymer Bailey Architects bring the triple bottom line approach to every project, creating commercial architecture that achieves maximum yields for owners and tenants and civic spaces that are welcoming to the community.

With extensive experience in dealing with complex sites, busy streetscapes and a range of town planning issues, we identify and overcome site challenges quickly and efficiently to ensure projects are delivered on time and budget.

Through every commercial and civic project our team designs we prioritise the following:

  • An attractive appearance with a strong street presence to engage new customers

  • Durable, hardwearing building materials and finishes for low building maintenance

  • Future flexibility to ensure spaces can be let and used even if the industry or tenancy changes

  • Office fit out and interior design to ensure strong branding and a continual flow from the outside in

  • Sustainable measures to decrease operational costs and minimise environmental impact through the use of natural light, ventilation and energy-efficient building services

  • Disability Discrimination Act compliance to ensure accessibility for all staff and customers

  • Careful planning to ensure business can continue to be operational during renovations and extensions

Looking out for your best interests, and those of your tenants or the general community, we investigate options on how spaces can be arranged to maximise efficiency and minimise disruption if future changes are required. Drawing on our extensive knowledge and experience from designing auditoriums and community centres that need to open up or close down depending on the size of the audience, we can think creatively and challenge traditional layouts to create spaces that adapt to different needs.

Equipped with a highly experienced Green Star professional interior designer, we are also able to give cutting edge insight into sustainable outfitting, colour schemes and branding ensuring your office space, retail outlet, warehouse, government department or community project is inviting to all users.
